    Was going to ask for an update but the OP hasn't posted since October. So I clicked on his blog and found this:

    A really nice break down. I must say i do like it when authors share this kind of info. Makes for great research for newbies, and allows for a more informed plan to be made.

    And a great first year can i just say, to sell that many books in year one is great. Congrats all around

    The only way to get volume sales is by selling through the retail books trade, and that means you need to print copies in advance to place with wholesalers and retailers. That also means that you have to take account of the fact that the retailers will take a very large proportion of your book's cover price which you have to build into your costings. The problem with most self-published books is that they are published 'on demand' and printed digitally in small batches.

    It's not the only way. It's just (overwhelmingly) the most common. There are an increasing number of writers making volume sales via Amazon without ever putting a single book in print. They're a small percentage, but it's working for them.
